Tour description provided by Viator

When you’re in port in Ixtapa, cruise to Ixtapa Island to enjoy a fun day of swimming, snorkeling, water sports and relaxation on a deserted beach. Renowned for its beaches and warm, crystal-clear waters, Ixtapa Island is perfect for snorkeling and sunbathing! As you enjoy the wide range of restaurants, water sports and tropical marine life, you’ll have a great time on this shore excursion.

After you disembark from your cruise ship, your guide will lead you on a short boat ride across the Pacific waters to Ixtapa Island. Relax on the sandy white beaches and jump in the warm, crystalline water to swim or snorkel. Ixtapa Island consists of four separate beaches: Playa Cuachalalate, Playa Varadero, Playa Coral and Playa Carey. Renowned for its unspoiled tropical coral, Playa Coral is the perfect place to start your snorkeling adventure (you can rent equipment on the island). Swim through the water to discover the colorful coral reef and tropical marine life. Or spend time at Playa Carey, the smallest and most undeveloped of the four beaches, to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the island. Enjoy a delicious Mexican lunch of ceviche or steak and salad, along with a drink, as you relax on the beach. Worry-free Shore Excursion:We will ensure your timely return to Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo Pier for this activity. If you are not returned to the ship on time to board, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. See our terms and conditions for full details.
